I feel a bit shaky about stealth. Too many sharp creases to start off with! TThe shape does not give me much confidence in the Stealth part.

I hope the design of the next iteration of our destroyers will approach something like this:

Pricey though at $7.5 Billion (yes, billion!) incl. R&D costs.

Its good and refreshing to see such details. It also gives jitters that all of such details is already available in public. Hope enemy has to do some work to get details :-)

The 'pop up' manoeuver was first introduced by the Yanks in the McDonnell Douglas Harpoon missile in the late 1970s - at that time it was a real counter measure but not anymore for at least last 20 years.
The pop-up maneuver introduced with the Harpoon was not intended to counter CIWS (they hadn't been developed yet) but was intended to get a final radar look at the target at a relatively short range (where surface-air missiles would have difficulty locking on to it). For a CIWS which has very fast reaction and tracking times, such a pop-up maneuver actually helps it track the missile since it is then clearly visible on radar against the sky instead of getting lost in the background clutter of the sea surface.

With CIWS as standard on most modern warships, newer anti-ship cruise missiles follow one of two strategies to evade such defenses in the terminal stage -- stealth (e.g. the Swedish Naval Strike Missile), or speed (e.g. Brahmos)
